Our Medical Team

What does the medical team do at camp?

The Medical Team is responsible for working with camp staff to care for the participants of our programs under the guidance of a Medical Director. From cuts and scrapes to insulin doses and adjustments, our Medical Team takes care of it all! At our camps, medical professionals are assigned to a group of campers for the whole session and help dose and adjust insulin at every meal.

How many medical staff attend each program?

We have a range of medical staff needs that vary based on the length and type of program. Regardless of the session, you will never be the only medical staff on duty and you’ll always report to our Medical Director, who has vast experience in working with children with type 1 diabetes.

Who can apply as a Medical Team Volunteer?

We welcome all licensed nurses, certified diabetes educators, mental health professionals, registered dietitians, and physicians, to apply as a volunteer at one of our programs.

We can accept a limited number of unlicensed medical or nursing students at some programs to learn and shadow a licensed medical professional.

How much time am I committing?

Most of our programs are 5-7 days in length. See our 2022 schedule for session dates.

Can I get continuing education credit for attending a program as a medical staff volunteer?

We are pleased to be able to offer Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) for RN’s at our residential summer programs (Bearskin Meadow Camp and Camp de Los Niños). We also have partnerships with some universities to provide a camp experience as part of the curriculum for students.
